Anthem 720 plus AMP vs 1120 in regards to Atmos

I want to upgrade to the Anthem 720 but I also want to put up 4 Atmos speakers in the ceiling. I know I can do it with the 720 as long as i add a 2 channel amp. So the question is should i just get the 1120 or buy the 720 with a cheaper amp so its less than the cost of a 1120. As for a amp, what do you suggest.

I had the same decision to make and I have the 1120 on order. I just thought the 1120 would be better than 720 and worth the extra money

I got the 720 and use it exclusively as an AVM60 with external amps. If your cost for 720 + amp is lower than 1120, you should go that route. There's no benefit to the 1120 over 720 except more amps.
